Random 10 on Tuesday: Takin' a trip!
1 -- Saturday morning, a text from Kate:
This is super spontaneous but do you have any interest/ability to go to NY(C) this next weekend? Fri-Mon. I’m just hoping to see a ton of art fairs and eat some good food. haha
2 -- There is almost nothing I love more than a spontaneous trip -- near or far! It doesn't always work out that I can be this spontaneous, with less than a week to departure -- previous commitments, getting time off at work, prohibitive cost are the usual culprits -- but this time, it worked out wonderfully! Yahoo!!
3 -- NYC?? I've flown in/thru/out once or twice in recent years, but it's been almost 10 years since I actually set foot on a New York City street. I'm so excited! I think I was a New Yorker in a previous life... or I'm gathering steam and will be in another.
3 -- Saturday evening: airfare confirmation (at a great price)!
4 -- Sunday afternoon: hotel booked.
5 -- Monday: Tripit itinerary filled in.
6 -- The Armory Show, Volta NY, Spring/Break, and the Whitney Museum of American Art are on the short list.
7 -- The High Line, Central Park, and MoMA are on the longer list.
8 -- Also a visit to Purl Soho (on my list, anyway), and within walking distance from our hotel! And bagels.
9 -- We're going to hit the ground running on Friday afternoon and GO-GO-GO until, exhausted, we board the plane for home on Monday afternoon.
10 -- NYC, here we come!! (All suggestions are welcome!)
Hope you have as much fun as you can take!

I have only one suggestion that I think is a must do: The Tenement Museum! I'd also recommend Katz's Deli, it's just a couple of blocks from the museum.

Nice! Safe travels and enjoy! I've been to Purl Soho (and surprised at how small it is!!). There's a button shop somewhere - or trims or something. Will try to get that info to you...also a bookstore that is different and supposed to be very good. off to look for those.

OK - the one store I was thinking of was Tinsel Trading Co. which has relocated to Berkeley, CA!! The bookstore is Bonnie Slotnick's cookbooks: www.bonnieslotnickcookbooks.com - looks like it could be fun!!
